Versaflex is a portfolio company of Dalfort Capital Partners. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“Versaflex’s attractive segment mix with strong growth outlook, unique product offering, broad expertise, and manufacturing capabilities in polyurea and flooring coatings will complement and expand upon PPG’s current product offering,” said Ram Vadlamannati, PPG senior vice president, protective and marine coatings (PMC) and president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “This acquisition supports PPG’s commitment to growing our industry-leading technology portfolio and customer touchpoints.”

Versaflex has approximately 130 employees

Versaflex is an aggregation of four U.S.-based protective coatings companies, consisting of legacy Versaflex, Raven Lining Systems, Milamar Coatings and Specialty Products, Inc., which were acquired by Dalfort Capital from 2017-2019. Versaflex has approximately 130 employees and its full year 2020 revenue is expected to be approximately USD 70 million (EUR 57,6 million). The company operates three manufacturing sites located in Kansas, Oklahoma and Washington.

PPG just announced quite a lot of major takeovers. Just earlier this week, the company announced the planned acquisition of Wörwag and the planned acquisition of Tikkurila. Both companies are listed in the Top 25 ranking of Europe’s largest coatings manufacturers.
